Top 10 Moments of 2016

December 30th, 2016

top1-01On our recent creative trip through South America, we got to meet the former president of Uruguay, Jose “Pepe” Mujica. It was an incredible and inspiring experience to see someone of his stature living in an old farm house, driving a beat up old VW Bug, and caring so much about the health and well-being of the people and the environment in his country, not just with words, but with his actions as well. This revolutionary man inspired a tee in our holiday collection with profits going to a charity of his choice.

FILA is one of the oldest and largest sportswear companies in the industry. It was a pleasure designing a collab shoe at the FILA HQ in New York City earlier this year. Stay tuned for the release of our project in 2017.

Every year Akomplice hosts an employee retreat called Camp Bowzooga. This was on every single employee’s list as a top moment. This year it took place in the mountains of Paonia, Colorado. We trekked the Black Canyon in Gunnison, hosted our annual bong competition, and had time to vibe with the entire team about life and Akomplice.

We have worked with both Ricky Powell and David Flores individually in the past, but for this collab we brought the two renowned artists from opposite coasts together to carry out this high profile collab. Their unique styles blended seamlessly with David Flores creating original pieces from Ricky’s iconic photographs.

Getting an invitation to exhibit our art alongside renowned artists Shepard Fairey, Ron English, and Cody Hudson at the official Bernie Sanders Art Show was a definite highlight of 2016. It took place at the Hole Gallery in New York City and was put on by HVW8. The show was only days before the New York primary and the energy in the city was electric. Bernie made an appearance at the show to come and check out all the art made in his honor.

Our brand took a huge step forward this season with the introduction of our Entirely Made in the USA organic basics collection. We dreamt of the day we could use organic USA grown cotton and have it milled in the USA, dyed in the USA, cut in the USA, sewn in the USA, and labeled/packaged in the USA. We did not think this was feasible, but we figured out how to make it happen. To our knowledge, we are the only brand in the USA doing this.

Our core team member Theo was hyped to interview Beast Coast’s own Kirk Knight when he came through to LA for his show. Kirk has been a long time supporter of Akomplice. Theo had a lot to say after the interview “Being that we had already worked with Joey Badass on the J. Dilla collab, it was an honor to be able to shine the light on Kirk Knight. I was fortunate enough to do the interview on their tour bus where I met Kirk and The Underachievers. I’ve been around other rappers and artists, but Kirk Knight was a genuine dude.”

We are proud to have raised close to $25,000 to help the Standing Rock fight continue. Mainstream media is acting like the Standing Rock fight is over, but the pipeline company has not left the grounds and since the announcement by the Army Corps of Engineer’s that the pipeline needed to be rerouted there has been new equipment delivered to the site, including the main drill needed to go under the river. The battle is still on and over 3,000 natives are still there 24 hours a day standing up for the protection of their water.

If you haven’t watched Mike and Patrick chop it up with Wale about how the collab came about, you should do so.

Akomplice Winter Graphics

December 21st, 2016

Mike Liberty’s design trip through Brazil, Uruguay, and Argentina was the inspiration behind the recent Akomplice collection. Much of the range is themed around the juxtaposition between the inner and outer journey for happiness. A standout piece is the Pepe Mujica tee, which was conceived after Mike met Uruguay’s previous president Jose (Pepe) Mujica. 90% of profits from the sale of this tee will be donated to Jose Mujica’s charity of choice. The graphics collection also showcases stabs at fast fashion and how the industry often preys on human insecurities in order to sell products. Keep your third eye open. Salutes from the Akomplice family. Check here for the full collection look.

Akomplice Camo Capsule

December 16th, 2016

See below our just released winter Camo Capsule collection. Camouflage is timeless, however, it’s often re-created with the same aesthetic. For this reason, we wanted to innovate a camo that took steps into uncharted territory. We created an oversized and subdued camouflage pattern for a flannel-lined heavy weight trench coat and a down winter jacket. The oversized and subdued concepts are carried through to the t-shirts of this collection. The standout being a thick knit camo tee that is made with heavy gauge yarn, a first of its kind, pushing the idea of what a camo t-shirt can be. Evolution through innovation. View the entire collection at our webstore here.
